This year’s Wishbook cover is a bit unusual and unconventional. PAVM Wishbooks tend to feature Renaissance art and ancient antiquities that are emblematic pieces of our five hundred- year-old institution. What graces this year’s cover is a replica of the headdress (or “Dhoeri”) used for ceremonial purposes by the indigenous people of the Torres Strait Islands. This ceremonial attire testifies to the vast artistic variety of our collection, which makes our Museums truly a global institution.

We want to thank you once again for all of your help and support in 2020, as we look forward to this new year of activity.
